Currently, more than 2,000 KIPP alumni are enrolled in college—up from 1,100 one year ago. By 2015, we project to have 10,000 KIPP alumni enrolled in college. The need is urgent to create innovative supports for this growing number of students before, during, and after college.
At KIPP, a college-going culture is embedded into everything we do. Our KIPP Through College program provides students and families a variety of supports from middle school onward to help ensure students are prepared for college and the workplace. And KIPP is partnering with colleges and universities to invest in the PreK–16 education continuum and urge them to better support underrepresented and first-generation college students.
While KIPP students have impressive college results so far, we still have a long way to go to reach our goal of KIPP students graduating college at a rate comparable to their highest-income peers.
